Dolphins Cancer Challenge with Team Polyglass
Once again I will be participating in the Dolphins Cancer Challenge with team Polyglass riding 52 miles to support the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center on February 11th. I am proud to be a part of this tradition and a member of an organization that talks about FAMILY as a culture and backs it up with its actions. This year I will be riding with more of a purpose than I have in the previous three years. Last year I lost two of my family member to this horrible disease.
This event, sponsored by the Miami Dolphins is the largest charity event sponsored by any professional sports franchise is the country. ALL of the proceeds go DIRECTLY TO RESEARCH, not to administration costs. Since its inception in 2010 the DCC has raised $16,500,000 for the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Support Team Polyglass-February 11th
I’ll be riding with Team Polyglass for this important cause and ask you to participate by donating to Sylvester through my sponsorship link. The amount doesn’t matter. Polyglass is one of the major sponsors of this event and Roof Tech Associates would love to have your support.
